    Return Function as a String to dictate filepath of email attachment

    Hi All,

    Trying to send an email with an attachment from the My Documents folder. Due to my networked settings I need to be able to change the file path depending on the specific users device etc, all the file paths will be different for each user etc.

    So I have a function that successfully returns my file path in a message box. I need to get that function to return a string so I can use it in my email subroutine

    The above returns the file path for My Documents in a message box

    and the above is the code to generate my email with the attachment.

    I've tried fiddling around with the function so that it returns a string, not a msgbox but I cant seem to figure it out! Ive tried putting a new dimension and setting as the function return too with no luck!

    Any advice? Thanks in advance to all!
